Milan FW Street Style: Printed People

To watch Stella Jean's SS14 collection at Milan Fashion week last weekend, one of our contributors Claudia and I knew we had to get into the printed spirit. We turned straight to one of our favourite SBA designers to do this, Sindiso Khumalo's colourful graphic prints.

I went for monochrome and metallic in Sindiso's Shirley Gold Sleeve Tee, accessorised with a gold necklace and bracelets from another SBA favourite- Savannah Chic who make gorgeous handcrafted jewellery in Kenya. 

Claudia wore Sindiso Khumalo's  Aretha Silk Georgette dress, which was nominated as "Most Beautiful Object in South Africa 2013" by Cape Town's Design Indaba earlier this year. Sheer, sexy, and colourful the dress is an easy statement piece that looks unforgettable. We mixed this up with Heart 365's handmade Nilot Earrings whose blue crystals and vintage tassels gave the look an elegant finish.

Backstage we saw a lot of supporters of the Stella Jean x ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative collaboration- these were our favourite looks. A more fun version of office chic don't you think?
